Time for Something Sweet

Here is another one of the five layouts we got to make for convention in our Studio J online scrapbooking program. This one amazingly features our fall/halloween kit called Mischief - can you tell? (Click on the image to see it larger.)

We've changed the colors to blues and pinks instead of the black/orange/cream colors! And it gave me the opportunity to preserve my fun time with friends at a Close To My Heart Studio J Boot Camp in Salt Lake City last year. It was so much fun! I loved learning a ton of new techniques AND spending quality time with the girls!

It's so cool how I made the table with cupcakes! I started with a table from the My Stickease collection that had a book and candle on top. I cropped off the book and candle. Next I took a piece of the honey colored candy wrapper and cropped off all but one of the ends, then rotated it to sit on the table. Next I added an oval accent to the top of the cupcake paper and clicked "send to back" to tuck it behind the cupcake paper. The I added a tulip colored brad for the cherry and a tulip colored staple for the stem! Once I had one cupcake done, all I had to do is copy and paste the entire cluster for the other two! So easy!

The techniques featured in this layout are:
  • Altering the look by changing the colors of B&T papers
  • Rotating a page
  • Using vellum text box to lighten a color
  • Converting a photo well to a text box
  • Creating your own embellishments
